    All three of our children attended this school and we were never disappointed. Small class sizes and wonderful caring teachers make this school a standout. Lots of opportunity for parent involvement and academically a challenging pace with standards of success for every student. We had to move away and have yet to find a school that compares. If given the opportunity I would recommend this school above all others in Rapid City. We only wish our children were still attending there.

    We love the smaller class sizes and all of the teachers have been fabulous! The curriculum that the school uses has kept our oldest son at above average for his grade level since he started there in kindergarten. We are eager for our youngest child to be able to attend Calvary when he is old enough!
